Best Putter Grips 2017: Guide and Reviews

Even if you are not an avid golfer, most people recognize the importance of putting. It is, after all, one of the aspects of a golf game that can make or break an otherwise good run.

To help make a golfer’s game on the green as smooth as possible, a player may want to look into some putter grips. These grips can help to make the putter comfortable in the hand of the golfer as well as give the putter a feel that can help with putting.

Buying Factors for Best Putter Grips

When buying a putter grip, there are a few things you will want to look into. These important factors will help to decide the best putter grip for your needs.

Shape

To start is the shape of the golf grip. Obviously you are not going to want a grip with an awkward shape because that can be a hindrance. You will want something that will feel comfortable in your hand, and help provide better performance.

Diameter

While still technically part of the "shape" category, the diameter of your putter grip is important. A diameter that is too large will feel clunky in your hands, while one that is too small may not give you a good enough grip, so you will want to find the size that is perfect for your hands.

Weight

The weight of your putter grip is important not just for comfort, but the performance of your putter. You will want something that helps give your putter the best weight distribution to help with your green game.

Now that we have an idea of what we should be looking for when buying a putter grip, let’s get to our list of some amazing putter grips that you should consider.

The Legacy is a grip that is made using material with "CrossTraction" technology. This material give the putter grip a better feel that makes it as comfortable as possible.

Super Stroke Legacy 3.0 Putter Grip

The Legacy grip has a weighs about 60 grams, which makes it average weight for a putter grip, not too heavy and not too light. The grip is also available in a multitude of colors, allowing the golfer to pick a color that suits them or the putter the grip will be used on.

The grip is designed with double sided tape and grip solvent for when you put the grip on your putter. While being advertised as having an "Easy, slip-on design", this feature actually makes it a bit difficult to put on your putter.

That really is the only complaint against this grip however, and it is overall a good grip to have. With good weight, and great feel, this is a grip that most golfers may be glad to have.

The only negative, if it can even be considered a negative, is that the Pistol grips are midsized. While this is not a bad thing, it may not be for those golfers that are looking for something larger.

Kind of opposite of our previous grip, the Odyssey tends to run larger. While this is great for some, it may be hard to get used to for those that use a standard sized putter.

Beauty, comfort, and versatility are all offered up by the Odyssey Putter Grip. The Odyssey is another great putter grip available at a great price.

Golf Pride MCC Plus4 Grip

Our last grip for today is the Golf Pride MCC Plus4 Grip. While the grip may be last on our list for today, it by no means comes in last place for putter grips.

Made with a standard, rubber material, the rounded designed Plus4 is made in a way that helps with a golfer’s game. The weight and texture of the grip are all designed to help a golfer reduce tension and increase power with their putter, helping the golfer to improve their game.

Golf Pride MCC Plus4 Midsize Grip

That isn't to say that this putter grip isn't comfortable as well. The lower hand portion of the putter grip is made with soft and responsive rubber, which not only is good for your game, but good for your hands as well.

These grips do not have the color variety of some of the others, only coming in a typical black and grey color. They also do not have the tacky sort of feel that some other grips have, so if these two elements matter to you, then you may want to pass on this grip.

The Golf Pride MCC Plus4 Grip is a grip that can provide comfort while improving your golf game, which makes it a great choice for many golfers. If you are more concerned with effects on your golf game then earning style points, then this is the right putter grip for you.
